Johannesburg - Two people were critically injured when two buses collided head-on in Lenasia, south of Johannesburg, on Monday, Johannesburg emergency services said.

“Two people sustained head and spinal injuries. They have been taken to the Chris Hani Baragwanth hospital,” said spokesman Robert Mulaudzi.

He said five other people sustained minor injuries.

“Luckily there were not many passengers in the buses,” he said.

He called on motorists to drive carefully as the roads were slippery due to the rain. - Sapa
